Yodel, the independent UK parcel carrier, has partnered with specialist freight forwarder DG International to launch a streamlined global outbound service to UK retailers.
The new Yodel International service has been developed to provide a fast and efficient home delivery solution to over 200 countries and territories for parcels up to 30kg.
The move follows steady growth in cross border sales in recent years, which Yodel attributes in part to improved consumer confidence and an increase in reliable internet connections.
Duncan Lee, Yodel’s director of international business development, commented, “Global internet penetration is increasing and our new International service has been designed to enable retailers to open their online stores up to emerging markets that they possibly hadn’t considered before, as well as those already established.”
James Appleby, managing director of DG International, added, “We are delighted to work in partnership with Yodel. With the spread of internet technology, the opportunities for retailers to enter new territories such as Israel and Saudi Arabia and offer customers a truly end to end service are really exciting. Cross-border distribution capability is a crucial component for UK e-commerce businesses, with consumers around the world expecting the same level of service as those based locally.”
